Indian Rhinoceros and Calf

Mother and Child

Why do Asians value the rhino horn so highly? After all, it's only hair. This mother's horn is well worn, and it's easy to see that it's made of hair. In the picture you can see the hair content at the frayed edges.

This mother and young calf are looking for apple slices. They'll hang around the truck and pose for pictures as long as the apples last.
